TV SPEC Reading of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia “The Gang Gets Diverse”, by Jordan Champagne

Script for an existing show: “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”

When the gang learns that Paddy’s is going to be featured in a Phillymag article about cheaper, lesser-known bars in Philadelphia, they desperately and cynically try to recruit some people of color as new employees, in a bid to make the demographics of their bar appear more diverse. Does it work? Of course not, it blows up in their faces.
